Take on the GT Academy 2012 to Win Prizes!

The free distribution of GT Academy 2012 began from May 1st, and players from all over the world are continuing to participate in the events and shave valuable seconds from their records. This limited-time event teaches you successively more complex sports driving skills in the 8 rounds of trials that become available over time.

In GT Academy 2012, you can also receive prizes that you can use within Gran Turismo 5, if you achieve a certain level of performance.
If you achieve a gold trophy in all 5 events within a round, you will receive the GT Academy-spec Nissan that was used in the trials in each of the rounds. You have a chance to acquire the following cars in the 4 rounds currently open, and there are more cars to add to your collection in round 5 and onwards.

Round 1: Nissan Leaf G (GT Academy) '11
Round 2: Nissan SILVIA spec-R AERO (GT Academy) '02
Round 3: Nissan SKYLINE GT-R V・spec II (GT Academy) '94
Round 4: Nissan 370Z (GT Academy) '08
In addition, those that clear all 8 events with bronze or better results will receive an official GT Academy 2012 racing gear set that your Gran Turismo 5 avatar can wear. Realised in black with the GT Academy logo, this is another cool racing suit to add to your collection.

The prizes will be distributed one week after all GT Academy 2012 events have ended, on or after July 4th. To add the items to your game, all you need to do is to start your copy of Gran Turismo 5.
Even if you do not currently own Gran Turismo 5, your account will be given access to these items, and they will automatically be added if you decide to purchase the game at a later date. If you haven't tried GT Academy 2012 yet, why not start your free download from the PlayStation®Store and invite your PlayStation®3 friends?
